Patty’s Picks: Two must-see films in theaters now!

Patty’s Picks highlights two films opening in theaters. First up is “The Covenant,” directed, written, and produced by Guy Ritchie. The drama follows US Army Sergeant John Kinley, who is rescued by an Afghan interpreter and returns the favor by rescuing him from the Taliban when they are not given safe passage to the USA as promised. The film is rated R for violence and runs for 2 hours and 3 minutes.

The second film is “Chevalier,” a biopic about a violinist, composer, swordsman, and fashionista named Joseph Bologne. Kelvin Harrison Jr. plays the titular character, who rises through the ranks of bigotry and jealousy to become a favorite in Marie Antoinette’s court. The film is rated PG-13 and runs for 1 hour and 47 minutes. Patty gives “Chevalier” 4.5 out of 5 violins and praises the history, entertainment, and fantastic costumes.
